Antibiotic Resistance Action Center
Dr. Lance Price is a professor at the George Washington University’s Milken Institute School of Public Health in Washington, DC. He is also the founding director of the Antibiotic Resistance Action Center. Dr. Price works at the interface between science and policy to address the growing crisis of antibiotic resistance. His research, retracing the evolution and epidemiology of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, has been published in top peer-reviewed journals and covered in media outlets around the world.
In the laboratory, Dr. Price uses cutting-edge molecular approaches to trace the origins of antibiotic-resistant bacteria and develop strategies to block their transmission. In the policy arena, Dr. Price works with non-governmental organizations and policymakers to develop science-based policies to curb unnecessary antibiotic use in people and in food-animal production.
Dr. Price received his Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Microbiology and Biology from Northern Arizona University and his Doctorate in Environmental Health Sciences from the Johns Hopkins University, where he was a Center for a Livable Future Doctoral Fellow.
